Edwardian Market, Lancaster Unlocked (or Happy Hats)

Today's Saturday outdoor market in Lancaster's city centre was a themed day - Edwardian Market, Lancaster Unlocked.

The markets were even busier than usual, with traders and other locals dressed for the part. From my perspective, it was a welcome opportunity to capture a series of portraits. There had always been a plan to do something on the markets, but today was a gifted opportunity to highlight some of the characters who make them happen. The two gents above run stalls selling French breads and fruit and veg, and the lovely couple below run the second-hand book stall. Don't they all look the part? More photos to follow over the next few days - hope you enjoy them.

And here are three locals I found browsing the stalls, one of whom you've met on previous posts in this blog..


  1. Looks like a fun and very nice day!:-)
    Yes, I remember the man on the last photo!!

  2. Very nice portraits. They are a bit dressed up in that last shot!

  3. I'd say everyone had a great time, from the looks of them. Very nice portraits, Eamon!
